Grateful Dead

Rainbow Theatre
London, England

Spring Equinox

I was out doing yardsales recently. I had the SYF hat on and was looking for some fans for the hot Tucson summer. Got to talking with this one fella and the GD came up. He said to me after hearing about LL that he had some tapes. I asked him if he knew where they came from. He said "I cant tell ya man". I thot he meant that he " didnt know cant tell" but out he walked with a lil treasure chest of some cassettes. The cases werent pretty but the tapes were high end pro tapes. I asked him again where he got them and again he said "I cant tell you" but it seems your folks in the trading world might like them Well, i got home and found too many treasure to note. He told me they werent always on the best dubbing deck and some had been played and were at least 25 years old (some older) but he was sure that these versions were recorded by what he termed a "dear old buddy" and official channels and he had them for years and years and would like some of them to see the light of day. As always, More to come.

This may be my best Christmas present.

hey TBOLT!

in the past i have preferred the fall run and 3/23.... but FOR SURE... they liked playing in this room!

they really clicked at the RAINBOW ROOM in 81..... thanks for the heads up and merry xmas.....


the fire on the mountain is really fun. not an all time version but you can hear the energy of the band forming throughout the song.... so naturally in that unique GD way.....

they almost sound a little cold at first, then heat up a little too fast.... as jerry races to the peak on the second solo break on a perfect trajectory but in unintended record time.... i keep waiting for him to come in with another lyric. and they mess around a little and then finally, "long distance runner......."

i just like the energy on this!!!!!!....... looking forward to the SBD
